Still getting tons of tomatoes? I also get a lot of organic arugula and other saute greens like the various kinds of kale and bok choy that need cooking. Together, the greens and the fresh tomatoes make a delicious and nutritious side dish. Here’s what I did with them.
Arugula has a lot of nutrition. Eaten with good fats, all the minerals get absorbed and assimilated. Arugula is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium, manganese and magnesium. It is also high in potassium, iron, zinc, riboflavin and copper. Remember, minerals need to be in the presence of fat to be well absorbed. Any vegetable should be served with some good fat in the sauce. This will make you healthy and make the vegetable so much more palatable and satisfying.
A large bag of arugula or mixed cooking greens
A large fresh tomato chopped
fresh garlic chopped or crushed
extra virgin olive oil (where to buy olive oil)
Ghee or butter (where to buy ghee)
